Off-gassings from Joel Hawkins

What this is
14 June 2018

a. Cool Thing catalog, appreciation aggregator, things worth remembering, and/or Kottke ripoff. Right now I’m thinking of this as My Hall of Fame, and my channels over there as the raw feed.

b. Writing practice

c. Idea bakery.1 Prediction: things here will be more done than they are finished, but having a place to put down ideas is more important than having them be airtight. I also don’t have to do this publicly (which is really more of a technicality at this point), but I’d like to allow for the possibility of dialogue. That, and hiding my light under a bushel hasn’t done me much good lately.

I have no idea what this is. It’s probably ill-advised to state what it is definitively on Day 2, but setting intentions is important so here we are. 2
